As some of you might know, I FREAKING LOVE HOLIDAYS AND TRAVELLING, it’s no secret that I am happiest when I have a trip planned. At the moment I don’t & it’s killing me a little bit inside. We can’t decide where we want to go or what the budget will allow, so it’s slowing my processes down, and I need to remind myself why I need to book a holiday. So whilst yes, this post is for my readers – it’s also a post for me too.

1. For your own sanity
Oh boy, with the type of work I do and the social life I have, my head is regularly spinning. Sometimes to drop off the grid to indulge in food, cocktails, sightseeing and relaxing with a book by the pool. It’s simple, when I’m away from every day life, my mind just instantly switches off. The stress just immediately flows and ebbs away. It’s only right we treat ourselves with a little bit of respect by allowing ourselves a break.
2. Something to look forward to
Similar to point 1. We are a nation of hard workers. Late evenings checking work emails, dashing around like headless chickens, we have to be working this hard for something right. My motto is “I work to live, not live to work.” and boy do I need a calendar where I can count down the days, day by day, literally.
3. Educate Yourself
I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’m a much more rounded person for experiencing different lifestyles and cultures. I’m not being snobby, but speaking from experience, I have an acquaintance who hasn’t stepped foot outside of the UK. They refuse to try new, authentic food or cuisine, have very odd views on certain things (many things that I do not agree with) and can be very small minded when it comes to the world. My own personal opinion is if they experienced new places & destinations they might have different views and be way more educated about the world itself.
4. For the ‘Gram
Aw man, I’m just kidding (kinda!). But on a serious note, I always feel way more inspired when I’ve hopped on a plane and seen new things. It opens up my mind to look at new things which in turn provokes new blog ideas and content for when I’m back on home turf (and, like I said, it also looks pretty good on Instagram? Am I right?)
5. One for the Bucket List
It’s time to enjoy the things you normally wouldn’t. Hike up Machu Pichu, throw yourself out of a plane in New Zealand or celebrity spot on the island of Capri. You’ll never experience everything in life by sitting comfortably at home. I get that some people long for that quiet life, I totally get it (it’s nice to love being home) but I on the other hand crave new adventures on a constant basis because every day life can become the same thing, day in, day out. So go on, tick something off that bucket list that you’ve been dying to do. I bet you’ll feel amazing for it afterwards?!
So, have you got some flights that you’ve constantly been checking on Skyscanner or Agoda? Have I persuaded you to book them yet?
